In a world where technology is transforming every aspect of our lives, it’s no surprise that the education sector is ripe for innovation. With over 10 years experience in eLearning, I’ve seen firsthand how disruption in the EdTech industry can bring about positive change and unlock new opportunities for learners and educators alike.
The Challenges of Building a Startup in a Traditional Academic Space
Starting a business in the EdTech space has its unique challenges. Traditional educational institutions are often resistant to change, and it can be difficult to break through the barriers of an industry steeped in centuries-old practices. But with the right mindset, persistence, and innovative ideas, it is possible to create a lasting impact.

My Personal Journey in Entrepreneurship and Leadership
My journey into entrepreneurship began early in life, when I discovered my passion for video production. After dropping out of college at the advice of my professors, I honed my skills and eventually met my co-founder, Eric Matas. Together, we recognized the potential of a free and user-friendly platform for creating and sharing learning content, and JazzJune was born.
As a leader, I’ve learned that success comes from a willingness to take risks, to persevere through challenges, and to remain agile in the face of change. The growth of JazzJune from a simple idea to a thriving platform is a testament to the power of embracing disruption and thinking differently.
